Venus 2 was a commissioned piece. After viewing the painting “Rebirth of Venus”, the client decided they wanted a more surreal and whimsical approach with the same concept coming from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.  You can read more about the inspiration for “Rebirth of Venus[HERE]

Their request was that the piece incorporate Venus being born out of the ocean, using a pastel color palette, and a prominent seashore theme. It was interesting to once again reinvent Venus being born out of the sea, and to incorporate a more realistic yet surreal figure. This opportunity to use the same subject in a different way really shows the diversity of how the same story can be told and convey different meaning with different imagery.
